Orcas are known to prey on marine mammals. This website documents scars on humpback whales caused by orca bites.

Note the small minke whale sandwiched between the two G-Pod orcas in Photo 5. While the photographer did not see the final outcome of this minke whale/orca encounter, there have been several reports of orcas killing minkes off St. Anthony (which is where this photo was take) and other parts of Newfoundland and Labrador.

These photos of the young minke sandwiched between two larger orcas were taken in July 2005 by Paul Alcock of Northland Discovery Tours.
